We spent the weekend in our cabin. After a long day’s work in the sun Dan drove and bought ice creams. Yum!
I have cooked a couple of different ice creams in my coffee maker and the very best is of course the Lingonberry Ice Cream…
- 2,5 dl cream
- 2-3 egg yolks (the yolks I used was pretty small so I used 3)
- 3/4 dl sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 1-1,5 dl lingonberries
- A couple of meringues
- Basil leaves
Start your coffee maker. Pour cream in the coffee maker carafe and heat it for almost an hour, it must get really warm. Give it a good whip every now and then, you know how easily cream burn.
Meanwhile mix eggs, sugar and vanilla together so it get’s fluffy. Pour the egg fluff with the warm cream in the carafe and put it back on the heater. Now this mixture shall coffee maker cook for a while until it thickens a bit, about 45 minutes. Don’t forget to stir. Turn off your coffee maker.
Before you add lingonberries and meringues let it cool for a while. Thereafter add lingonberries and meringues into the mixture and pour the ice-cream into forms. Place them in your freezer, stir every 30 minutes, until they get a nice ice-creamy consistency.
Eat and enjoy!
The cream is cooking in the coffee maker can.
This is how you cook lingonberry ice-cream with your coffee maker!
Approved by Zappa.
Didn’t find baby meringues, but this worked just fine.
Can you see what’s standing next to the coffee maker made ice-cream? An ice-cream machine, ha!
Eat it before it melts too much! (You probably won’t have that problem if you mustn’t wait for the photo shoot of the coffee maker made lingonberry ice-cream presentation.)
I get many questions about if it’s tricky to clean up after cooking. Answer: Not at all.
Palt (aka pitepalt), or potato dumplings, is apparently a traditional Swedish dish like meatballs, smorgasbord or blood pudding. I didn’t know much about palt, probably because it’s much more common in the very north of Sweden. Since I’m from the far south I never tried it before I made it in my coffee maker.
Taste wise it’s not my favorite traditional Swedish dish, but it definitely serves it’s purpose. It’s is extremely filling. There’s even an expression called “Paltkoma” (= potato dumpling coma) and I’m not surprised that expression exists.
- 10-15 small potatoes
- 1 dl barley flour
- 0.75 dl flour
- 3 slices of salted pork
- 0.5 tsp salt
- Lingonberry jam
Peel the potatoes, shred them and mix with salt and flour into a dough. Divide this and form it into 5 balls. Insert salted pork (that you have divided into squares) into center of each ball. Roll them between palms to enclose the pork completely and form smooth balls.
Pour water into the brewer, salt in the can and start your coffee maker. When the water has gone through the system slowly place the palt balls in the can and coffee maker cook for 1,5 hour. Turn off your coffee maker.
Drain and place the palt on a plate. Serve with lingonberry jam and a big dollop of butter!
Shred the potatoes. It should be even better shredded than this, but after a misunderstanding it turned out like this.
Moisten your hands and you won’t get sticky fingers.
Finally five perfect palt balls!
